    Lyrics

    Darling, when you sit up and stare all night
    I get the feeling that something ain't right
    My heart starts to beat on my drum-tight skin
    I just wanna kick it in
    I know you start weeping when you think that I'm sleeping
    I know you know that you just can't win
    But I'll try my best
    You know honey I swear I will

    Darling, you pretend to sleep but I know it's a lie
    This bed is wet from the tears you cry
    I lie there frustrated, don't know what to do
    Sometimes I can't get through to you
    I know you can't explain what's giving you pain
    And you just can't contain all your blues
    But I'll try my best
    You know that I have sworn I will

    So now if you wanna come out and talk about it
    I'll try to understand
    If you wanna yell it, scream it, please shout it
    And I'll try to understand
    But for now you know I just can't stand
    To see this sand
    Slipping out of my hand

    Darling, when you just can't take it anymore
    Shout it out, now, tell me what you're crying for
    Don't let it rage inside, that won't help you none
    Be like staring into the barrel of a loaded gun
    I will help you feel more self-assured
    And even if it cuts to the core
    I'll try to take it like a man
    Yeah, I'll try my best
    Honey I swear I will

    So now if you wanna come out and talk about it
    I'll try to understand
    If you wanna yell it, scream it, please shout it
    And I'll try to understand
    But for now you know I just can't stand
    To see this sand
    Slipping out of my hand
